Over 14.5 million people selected or were automatically re-enrolled in a health plan through the federally facilitated or state-based marketplaces during 2022 open enrollment, 21% more than in 2021, the Department of Health and Human Services reported yesterday. That’s similar to the number the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services reported in January. The average monthly premium for consumers receiving an advance premium tax credit was $133, down from $164 in 2021, and 28% of consumers receiving the tax credit selected a plan for $10 or less per month, HHS said.
